The Three Witches: (Supporting) May all be played by men or possibly two men and one woman. Three very powerful, otherworldly and androgynous creatures who prophesize that Macbeth will be king, setting into motion the plot of the play. They can cast spells and influence people and events. They are not completely human, but may often may take on the specific characteristics of humans. They are neither male nor female, so the actors playing them must be able to sublimate their gender in some way or another. They appear throughout the play as witches and as other characters, observing the action and exerting their powers. Blended with some of smaller parts, which they subsume, they are (along with Hecate) major players in the drama.
